This is my go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies. Growing up I wasn’t particularly drawn to the chocolate chip variety. I have a huge obsession with anything peanut butter, and still very much do! Hubbs on the other hand, lovessssss chocolate chip & so this recipe has become a major VIP in our house. Continue reading The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

I grew up in a house where my mom regularly cooked in cast iron. She has a large “dutch oven” type pot and several skillets. I loved watching her prep and stir on the stove top & then pop it in the oven until dinner time. I even have memories of her “seasoning” the pan after dinner. Which if you don’t know cast iron is a silly thing, you wonder why they are heating and oiling AFTER the meal!

As an adult I inherited one of her skillets & recently purchased a cast iron grill pan. Both of which get used quite frequently. The grill pan I use a lot to sear and bake pork tenderloins (recipe coming soon!). And now, strangely enough, the skillet is my go to pie plate! Continue reading Cast Iron Skillet Apple Pie

Oatmeal Whatever Bars Recipe at MadeByMeggs(dot)com (1)

This was a recipe E picked out herself from her Sesame Street C is for Cooking cookbook. I bought this book a long time ago, well before having kids. So we had had it on hand for a while, but never picked anything to cook from it. I’ve always loved the idea of having kids in the kitchen with you. Maybe it was all the days of making breakfast with my dad on the weekend, or baking with my mom, or even acting as the “pantry runner” during dinner prep… I grew up in the kitchen, and I want the same things for my kids.

I love banana bread. My mom always baked this when I was younger and there is just something about it that calls to me! The comfort of a warm stove, the fun of mixing it up together, the sweet but semi-guilt free snack to enjoy… Once I see my bananas getting a bit to brown… you know, when you forgot they were there & when you open them its gonna be total smush on the inside… Well those bananas are perfect for this bread!
